Hello everyone! Sorry this is up a bit later than normal. But… I’m happy to announce that the final two #BookMadness17 contestants are… Inej and Lila! It was a close round once again, but these two have always had an incredible amount of support throughout. Voting will close on Thursday, March 30 at 11:59 pm Central Time.
Who will be the Book Madness 2017 champion? It’s up to you all!
Congrats to our winners from last week, Gabriella who won the ARC of THE DUKE OF BANNERMAN PREP, Alora who won the signed copy of LESSONS IN FALLING, R.E. Johnson who won the LAST TO DIE swag, and Tina at @FantasticBook for winning the ARC of EVEN THE DARKEST STARS.
When I thought last round’s votes were close, I had no idea what was coming for this round. It seriously switched every time I looked at the poll. So, even though these are the four characters that have made it on to this round, all of the characters in Round 4 gave it their all. I can’t believe it’s almost time for the last round! After Round 5 voting closes on March 26 at 11:59pm Central Time, we will be one step closer to crowning the winning character! Don’t forget to enter the GIVEAWAY for some awesome swag this week!
Congrats to our winners from last round, Mor for winning the One of Us is Lying ARC, Courtney Haas for winning the A Dash of Dragon ARC, Delaney for winning the ARC of SPEAK EASY SPEAK LOVE, and TheresaJSnyder for winning the swag from THE DISAPPEARANCES.

Wow! What an amazing turnout for Round 1 of Book Madness! This community is amazing, and I am truly honored to host this event to celebrate all of our favorite fictional characters. The competition was tough to move on to Round 2, especially in the last few hours, but take a look to see which of your favorites stayed, and which were sadly bumped out. Even if your character got bumped this round, stick around and play! Anyone can enter to win the GIVEAWAYS no matter if you’re a participant or voter. Voting for Round 2 ends on March 10th at 11:59 pm CST.
Congratulations to the Round 1 giveaway winners, Frankie Brazelton who won the Brooding YA Hero swag pack, KayleighWynne Didion who won the WAIT FOR ME swag pack, and Megan from Ocean Full of Book for winning the signed copy of SOULMATED.

Be sure to check out everyone’s blog posts, videos, or Instagram photos below! I love all of your passion for fictional characters.
I loved hosting Book Madness so much in 2016 that I decided to make it bigger and better than ever in 2017 bringing in BookTubers, Bookstagramers, and Book Bloggers in on the fun! I’m SO close to having 64 bloggers signed up to participate and that honestly blows my mind. This community is epic awesome and I’m so glad to be a part of it.
In a nutshell, Book Madness 2017 is a chance for participating bloggers to gush about their favorite characters. Every few days there will be a new round of votes throughout the month of March to narrow all 64 of those characters down to one ultimate champion. Just like last year there will be prizes for viewers/voters and the bloggers participating! They will range from bookish trinkets, swag from 2017 debut authors (and possibly some ARCs!), Book Depository books for our international friends, and an Amazon card for our winning blogger!
